| 1. Is it possible, that ices updates Metadata (Artist ? Track) to the
| icecast Server in playlist mode?
I run ices2 and it updates metadata flawlessly.
| 2. Is there any possibility of controlling ices2 by a webinterface
| with functions like nextrack, stop and play, switching live stream
| and playlist?
Write a cgi script that sends Signals to ices2 (SIGUSR1 etc.)
more or less a "one liner" bash script would do.
| 3. Does anybody know a tcl script for eggdrops that can read and put
| out icecast2 Stream informations?
nope, but you could check if there are RDF/RSS scripts for it. I have a
xslt that outputs a valid RSS. Or write your own output type xslt and
use some other eggdrop script.
| 4. Are there any other player which are better for a mixed
| Playlist/Live Stream Server ?
you could use xmms with some plugins. YMMV. I prefer ices.
